10 things I love about Spring in New York

  1. The burst of pink and white blossom in every park, downtown street and rare garden
  2. The patchwork of daffodils, bluebells, crocuses and jonquils 
  3. New Yorkers emerging from their winter fashion chrysalis of black and more black, to sudden joyful splashes of color
  4. Cafes and restaurants unrolling their awnings and setting up their outdoor chairs and tables
  5. Piles of people filling those chairs and tables
  6. The sudden heightened energy on the streets as everyone comes out to stroll
  7. Random musicians appearing on street corners, under trees and in the parks
  8. The freedom of riding a bike along the Hudson without having to wear gloves, a beanie and michelin man jacket
  9. The appearance of white asparagus, rhubarb and organic lamb at the Union Square green market
  10. Having a reason to smile at a stranger on the street without them thinking you are a psycho who should be in rehab

Lucky you enjoying spring. Maybe its just me but I still never smile at strangers. Spring or not, you never know. xoxo
